WHAT TO EXPECT...come one, come all to the Galena Center for the Arts for an evening of well-wrought lyricism and delicious melodies from three modern midwestern troubadours: River Glen, Sophie Coyote, & Joel Sires Trio!

JOEL SIRES TRIO: Joel Sires never gives up, even when he probably should. A good natured blockhead, Sires is equivalent to Charlie Brown, had he played guitar instead of baseball. A headstrong and adventurous life in music has transformed Sires into a delightful left of center singer-songwriter. Having performed on renowned stages coast to coast including SXSW in Austin, Texas, and the iconic CBGBs in New York City, Sires has garnered attention from publications such as Paste and Spin Magazine. The songs carry an element of nostalgia, irreverent humor and genuine pathos that will more than likely turn the listener into a fan, or a friend. www.joelsires.com

SOPHIE COYOTE: Sophie Ann Tootelian aka “Sophie Coyote'' is a singer/ songwriter from the small mid-western town of Waddam’s Grove, Illinois. Born in a one hundred and twenty year old farm house on seven acres of land surrounded by rolling fields. She was raised on a broad range of musical influences that include Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Johnny Cash and many more. This open mind of influence has led to a songwriting style that is reminiscent of the raw and honest age of music; lyrically driven with interesting stories and unique twists and word-play. Sophie's recent releases include the single "Coyote Queen", the music video "Venom", and a live recorded E.P. titled “Indigo Child”. Find more at www.sophiecoyote.com.

RIVER GLEN: River was born at home in Dubuque, Iowa, homeschooled by his mom, and raised in a family band. His original music playfully blends elements of folk, pop, and rock. His songwriting strikes a delicate balance of pop-appeal and lyrical substance; from wonderings about love, family, and belonging, to the celebration of death and loss as a natural part of life. River critiques modern pop-culture through the lens of familiar, traditional folk themes, always with tasty grooves and clever rhymes. River began work on “As Above, So Below”, an album of original music featuring over one hundred and fifty singers/musicians, almost entirely from his home state of Iowa. “As Above, So Below” was released on May 1st, 2023.
